Those Kennedy's
Hi everyone!! I'm Kaitlyn and I love the Kennedy's (duh lol) Please ask any questions, I will try to answer them the best I can!!
John Kennedy is dead, and for that we are lesser people in a lesser land. —Ben Bradlee

RIP Ben Bradlee, the legendary Washington Post editor died at the age of 93 due to natural causes.

 “I don’t want to disappoint too many people, but … the number of interesting political, historical conversations we had, you could stick in your ear, it wasn’t that many. We talked about friends, family and of course girls.” Ben Bradlee on his friendship with John F. Kennedy

were jackie close to her mother? if im not mistaken she was very close to her father, if im right he was the only one visiting her at boarding school and so on?

Jackie had an odd relationship with her mother. Janet wasn’t very nice to her or Lee for that matter but Janet would tell Jackie she’s not as pretty as Lee but then she would turn around and call Lee fat. Lee said she suffered from an eating disorder because of it. Janet was also very controlling and wanted things done her way.

And yes Jackie was very close to her father and she was devastated when he didn’t walk her down the aisle.

She worked little jobs because she could, not because she needed the money. There may have been love with Jack, but the money didn't hurt either. I'm not insulting Jackie, there is nothing wrong with making sure your future is secure. And no her parents didn't have plenty of money. Her father blew most of it. And Onassis was definitely a money issue. Her spending needed a fat checkbook.

Yees her father did blow through most of his money. But Jackie and Lee did inherit about $80,000 each from him when he died in 1957, which is about $625,000 today so not chump change, but certainly not to the Kennedy’s standards. Jackie would have married money no matter who she married simply because that was the circles she moved in. Her stepfather cerainly never treated her and Lee as the poor relations.

Jackie probably married Onassis because of the security he could provide. Perhaps the money didn’t hurt either, but especially after Bobby was shot she was terrified for her children’s safety. Onassis was far from the US limelight and he had his own private island so he could ensure the press and random nutjobs did not have access to her or her children. She also found Onassis delightful and charming and had genuine affection for him.

But really anon, who could blame her for wanting some security under the circumstances? What mother wouldn’t do the same in her case???

whats ur opinion on lana del reys 'tribute' to the kennedys with her national anthem video? i think the song is catchy and has a certain mood to it, but i found the recreation of jfks assasination a little disrespectful idk

I like the song and the video was okay but other than that I don’t think much of the song. I don’t know if I would call it a tribute though….that’s just my opinion though.

Feel free to disagree though :)

JFK's millions was a major influence as well, but I do believe she loved him. Her fiance before JFK had considerably less money. Jackie definitely put money in the equation.

It's a little naive to say Jackie wasn't like that, she wanted brains but she was definitely looking at the bank account as well.

Then why did she spend her entire life proving she wasn’t like that? After Ari died she worked as a book editor. Do you think she needed a job? Before she married Jack she was a photo journalist. Do you think she needed that job? Her parents had plenty of money.

i also heard she had told one of her friends that marrying a rich man was her plan all along

Jackie wasn’t like that
